This is a record released by Swiss ambient artist/installation artist Zimoun on the ambient label 2023k in New York, USA in September 9.

Contains 6 minimal ambient drone songs using baritone guitar, amplifier, and modular synth. DL code included.This is a clear disc.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Site-specific projects using cardboard, DC motors, and other industrial products.Known for his immersive installations.His mechanized environments have been exhibited in prominent museums and galleries around the world.His latest work, ``ModularGuitarFields I-VI,'' is based on the sound of a tenor-baritone guitar, combined with a modular synth and a vintage 1960s Magnatone amplifier.

ModularGuitarFields I-VI span a vast and atmospheric realm, demonstrating Zimoun's passion for raw, warm sounds and minimalist concepts and approaches.It's a minimalistic yet dense soundscape with touches of psychedelia and hard microsound.These compositions, unlike his installation works, can be understood as sound sculptures, with movement, eliciting hypnotic atmospheric effects and creating immersive environments.

Even in his purely acoustic works, he remains deeply interested in sound generation and the creation of sonic spaces.Rather than following a narrative development, his compositions evoke a sense of place, more akin to architectural spaces.Although individual compositions often undergo minimal changes over time, their microstructures exhibit continuous development and change.It feels like a living organism, constantly changing, rather than evolving into something else.This reflects Zimoun's fundamental interest in nurturing complexity and variety within simple structures and elements, creating a system that is continuously nourished and nourished by the sound of the guitar.

ModularGuitarFields I-VI takes a step away from the tranquility and ephemerality of his fellow 12K artists, delivering a more intense drone-based album.At first it seems like an unforgiving, isolated landscape, but hidden layers reveal details teeming with life and movement, like exploring the interior of a gigantic glacier.

"Zimoun is a multi-disciplilnary Swiss artist who is best recognized for his immersive and site-specific installations with cardboard, DC motors and other industrial objects to create large-scale installations of orchestrated noise and movement. His mechanized environments have been shown in prestigiuos museums and galleries worldwide. On his latest musical release, ModularGuitarFields I-VI is entirely based on the sounds of a Tenor Baritone Guitar, combined with select elements of a Modular Synth and a vintage 1960s Magnatone Amp.

ModularGuitarFields I-VI encompasses expansive and atmospheric realms, showcasing Zimoun's passion for raw, warm sounds, as well as minimalist concepts and approaches. They are minimalist yet sonically dense soundscapes, with a touch of psychedelia and gritty microsounds. These compositions can be understood as sonic sculptures, teaming with movement, not unlike his installation work, and eliciting a hypnotic atmospheric effect and creating immersive environments.

Even in his purely acoustic works, he maintains a profound interest in sound generation and the creation of sonic space. His compositions evoke a sense of place rather than following narrative developments somehow akin to architectural spaces. Although the individual compositions often undergo minimal changes over time, they exhibit continuous developments and variations in their microstructures. They feel more like an organism constantly transforming and living, rather than evolving into something different. This Zimoun's fundamental interest in creating systems that foster complexity and a A multitude of variations within simple structures and elements, continuously nourished and nurtured by the guitar sounds.

ModularGuitarFields I-VI steps away from the quietude and fragility of his fellow 12k artists and and delivers a more intense, drone-based album. While it first comes across like an unforgiving, isolated landscape, the layers hidden within reveal details teaming with life and movement, like exploring the interior of a massive glacier.
